It's time for another fabulous I {heart}sketches challenge over at From The Heart Stamps.

here's the sketch...

The twist, if you want to use it, is.... No cards allowed.
Join in the challenge, and everyone who plays will receive a $1 discount code, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to spend at the store.
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too.

Here's my GD project...

Now, it was only AFTER i'd taken the photograph of this CARD, that I remembered that I was going to use this layout to decorate the top of a box, so that I could use the twist too. Oh well, never mind, the twist is optional anyways.

The image is Birdbrain Hula Chick, and i've coloured her with promarkers.
The green checked paper is by Lawn Fawn (Peace, Joy, Love). The paper with the butterflies was bought years ago, when I started card making. I can't remember the company, or the pad it came from, but it could have been either Dovecraft or DCWV, as I remember having different papers from both companies back then.
The flower embellishment was made by colouring (with promarkers) the largest flower after using the Die-namics flower and leaf trio die, then layering with a stamen (Nellie Snellen stamen punch), and finishing with card candy.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Craftitude - anything goes

  3. Such a fun card. I love the pretty paper combination and that adorable hula chick. You've done a lovely job bringing her to life with your wonderful colouring. The layering and that sweet flower add great detail. Thanks for playing along with our Anything Goes/Corrugated Challenge at Craftitude this fortnight. I hope you'll join us again soon.
